Quinton Methodist Church has enduring relationships with many charities and organisations. Below you will find brief details and links to these and Methodist Central and our local Circuit.

The Methodist Church in the UK

While Methodists belong to local churches, they are part of a larger connected community called the Connexion. This provides the promise of mutual support which is a major strength of Methodism.

Birmingham West & Oldbury Circuit

Quinton Methodist Church is part of the Birmingham West & Oldbury Circuit which is made up of thirteen Methodist churches and is led by the Superintendent Minister, Rev Mucharutya Chisvo. The Circuit forms part of the Birmingham District which also embraces much of Warwickshire and Worcestershire and a large part of Herefordshire in addition to much of the West Midlands.

Action for Children

Action for Children (formerly, NCH - National Children’s Homes) is the children’s charity of the Methodist Church. It was founded in 1869 by Methodist minister Revd Thomas Bowman Stephenson in response to the poverty and danger faced by vulnerable and destitute children and young people living rough on the streets of London.

Action for Children is today a leading children’s charity running over 500 projects and working with more children and young people affected by poverty, disability and abuse than any other UK charity. Quinton Methodist Church supports its work through Action for Children Sunday and ‘League of Light’ home collection boxes.
